Our stories are very similar it sounds like..except I was very sick during my 1st pregnancy with my daughter who is now 3. At the time they had no idea and were limited on the testing because I was pregnant so I suffered ALOT!! I was in the hospital 6 or 7 times for a total of 30+ days from 11 weeks until delivery. It was NOT fun!! I was dx'd 3 months after delivering my daughter. Spent a year trying to get a med that would work. Finally started remicade which helped but my crohn's was already so bad that I had my first resection in July 2007. Went back on remicade in Oct 2007 as maintenance drug.
My 2nd daughter was born 9/9/08 and I stayed on remicade throughout my entire pregnancy. I had my first infusion at 7 weeks and my last at 31 weeks. My Ob wasn't as excited about me staying on it, but my GI felt there was no other option. She is perfectly healthy and the happiest baby I have ever seen. There are some vaccination restrictions if you have a treatment in the 3rd trimester but the only one that my daughter hasn't been able to get is the rototeq which is a new oral vaccination for roto-virus.
Listen to your heart and trust your drs. What's best for mom is best for baby.
Goodluck and Take care!!
